Slow Track Cyprus Permanent Residency

Slow Track Cyprus Permanent Residency
Fri, 31 Mar 17


The slow track Permanent Residence Permit (PRP) is easily obtained for people who purchase property.

The advantage is that the slow-track or Category F Permanent Residency still gives homebuyers/investors the same benefits as the fast track Permanent Residency however the home buyer/investor gets to spend less money in exchange for a longer wait for the issue of the permanent residency.

Specifically, the slow track Permanent Residence Permit can be issued in approximately 12 months from the submission date.
